Gansu Pavilion


Gansu Pavilion

THEME: Silk Road, Song of Cities

PAVILION: The Pavilion employs a sophisticated LED light system to lure visitors into the Pavilion.

EXHIBIT: The exhibit displays the vicissitudes and revival of cities along the Silk Road on three themes and highlights the history and culture of the world-renowned Dunhuang Grottoes, urban civilization represented by the urban construction achievements since the founding of the People’s Republic of China and sustainable development concept embodied by circular economy. Ancient bamboo scrolls as well as images of Gansu’s scenic beauty are on display in the opening gallery. Another room displays Buddhist tapestries and statuary from Gansu’s ancient past. A large map of the province adorns one wall of the next gallery, which also contains trees and plants native to the province to illustrate the importance of green culture. There is also an exhibit on the new Duzhe development in Gansu. This leads into a theater with a 180 degree screen on which a five-minute computer animated film is projected. The final gallery has several interactive video screens that illustrate the uses of water in creating hydroelectric power, petrochemicals and mining. There is also an exhibit on the province’s extensive wind farm activity. (Unfortunately, some of the exhibits I’m only guessing at; the online Pavilion’s English component wasn’t working when I checked it out).

CUISINE: There is no dining area listed for the Pavilion.

SHOPPING: There is no specific shopping facility listed for the Pavilion.
